Has there been a medical crisis in history more politicized than covid? Joining us today is physician Richard Van Dam (vandamforkentucky.com), who is running for the U.S. House to represent Kentucky's 5th Congressional District. He looks at Anthony Fauci, the attempts to cover up the origins of the virus, and the demonization of those in the medical profession who had a different opinion than the approved political narrative. He also discusses Operation Warp Speed and the vaccines. It's important for people to consult with their doctors as to the best path forward medically and for politicians to stay far away from that process.
It's difficult to fight against any enemy – whether it be a vast army or hordes of ideological Marxists slowly eroding the foundation of your country – if you don't know who you are as a society. America has lost what it means to be American. Opening up this week, we are joined by author and cryptography expert Paul Rosenberg (freemansperspective.com). He points out that America has lost its metanarrative. We used to build things, care about things. But today, our proud heritage of innovation and freedom has fallen victim to a Marxist enemy intent on destroying us. Can we fight back? Only if we remember who we are.
One way Marxists have eroded our national identity is by long marching through the institution of education. Parents must take back their children's education with a long march of their own. We welcome Joe Murray (joemurrayenterprises.com), attorney, teacher, and founder of Joe Murray Enterprises to the show. He discusses ways public education should change to allow students to think for themselves instead of being indoctrinated. There are realistic steps parents can take right now to start marching in the other direction.
John finishes out the show this week looking at the different stages of totalitarianism, using the Canadian government's tactics against the Freedom Convoy trucker protest as an example.
John flies solo on today's podcast, looking at the Canadian truckers' protest convoy and how it highlights a few things about totalitarian governments. He shows the different stages governments, like Canada now, go through in trying to hold on to their power. When they are threatened by protest, especially by a large group, they try name calling, shaming, and even brute force to shut down dissent. John goes over the possible outcomes of a protest like this. We always advocate to stand up for truth and what's right. The truckers in Canada have been standing up – or rolling out in their case – against totalitarianism.
The so-called vaccines haven't been out long enough to be thoroughly tested, but we're told they work and none of the adverse reactions are related. Joining us today is Rebecca Terrell (thenewamerican.com), Senior Editor at The New American magazine. She examines what she calls the biggest medical experiment in history, looking at the efficacy of medications and why previous drugs were pulled from the market for serious side effects, but not the vaccines. She also discusses medical statistics, adverse reactions, and even the global depopulation movement.
Getting to the truth of any issue has become close to impossible today, especially if you listen to the mainstream news or the fact checkers on social media. Political correctness is killing us – sometimes literally. First up on the program this new year is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. Medical journal articles are now being censored if they don't conform to the official narrative about the virus and the vaccines. Dr. Risch looks at vaccine efficacy, when Covid could be over, and weighs in on the effectiveness of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Supposed fact checkers on social media are censoring posts that don't conform to the official narrative on any issue. Facebook just admitted in court that those same fact checkers are only offering opinions. Back with us this week is Founder and Publisher of American Thinker Thomas Lifson (americanthinker.com). This admission by Facebook not only reopens the publisher vs platform debate in regards to Section 230, but it also renders fact checkers useless. He also discusses inflation and the ineptness of the current administration.
In our final example of how political correctness is killing us, we look at the whole debate surrounding the vaccines and covid and the use and misuse of statistics. Wrapping out the New Year show this week is Dr. Jane Orient (aapsonline.org), Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. Definitions of words or phrases – like 'vaccinated' – are important because statistics will mean nothing if different studies have different definitions for the same word. The politically correct elites will use whatever study bolsters their narrative and eschew ones that don't.
We look at the status of the three Vs: the virus, the vaccines, and the variants. Joining us today is Dr. Harvey Risch (ysph.yale.edu), Professor of Epidemiology at Yale University's School of Public Health. He looks at the censorship from fact checkers when it comes to medical journals publishing information that doesn't conform to the government's prescribed narrative. He also analyzes vaccine efficacy, how soon this whole covid mess will conclude, and even weighs in on both Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. It's a ‘use all the banned keywords' kind of podcast today!
Whirlwind of important topics on this week's show. First up, we welcome back defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com) who examines the geopolitics of Belarus, with their growing uprisings; Russia and its future; and China's inroads into Eastern Europe with their Belt and Road Initiative.
Back here in America, the far leftist crowd is determined to rid our country of the Electoral College. Trent England (www.saveourstates.com), Founder and Executive Director of Save Our States, discusses the effort to convert us from a representative government for everyone to, what he dubs, the “United Big Cities of America.”
Science and medicine are supposed to be free of politics but it's an election year so all the rules are out the window. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. It's supposed to be scientifically – not politically – correct in the world of science.
Next we travel to the Middle East with David Rubin (www.shilohisraelchildren.org), former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, who joins us from his home there. He looks at both the strategic and economic implications of the Israel-United Arab Emirates agreement, focusing on the constant threat from Iran and the financial benefits to the UAE of partnering with the Middle East's only democracy.
We wrap up this week with John's analysis of the government criteria for future vaccine use and the ethical and legal implications in vaccine development and implementation.
If there's one thing you don't want politicized, it's life-saving drugs and the science behind them. Research writer Dennis Behreandt (www.thenewamerican.com) is back with us to look at the science behind hydroxychloroquine as well as the bad publicity it has received simply because President Trump lauded its use. Politically correct thinking is slowly taking over the world of science and it's to the detriment of not only the people it could help but also the scientists who are tasked with helping them.
Theories abound, both reasonable and far off in conspiracy land about any number of topics. But ultimately, what is the truth? In this week's boralogue, John recounts the purpose behind this program: to get to the truth. What is the truth in any situation? It doesn't matter where it comes from or how sane or crazy it sounds. If it's the truth and it's provable, then it is newsworthy and something worth talking about.
If a drug can successfully help mitigate this virus, why then are so many people outraging against it? Dr. Brian Joondeph (www.retinacolorado.com), Retina Surgeon at Colorado Retina Associates joins us to answer that plus he examines off-label uses of medicines and covers the overreach by power-hungry politicians during this pandemic.
Troy Loeffler, John's son, makes a brief appearance to explain how statistics are being used, misused, and misunderstood by experts and media pundits in covering this crisis.
Never trust bloated bureaucracies, especially during an emergency. Seton Motley (www.lessgovernment.org), Founder and President of Less Government, sounds the alarm on the marriage of big government and big tech in tracking virus patients. His message: if you think it will stop there, you're crazy.
An often overlooked story amidst the chaos of news today is that of the emerging 5G network. Author and Commentator Ben Weingarten (www.benweingarten.com) is back with us to discuss the strategic implications of losing the communications and information transfer battle with China where it concerns 5G technology.
Finally, John and Producer Steve chat about the dysfunctional media and their coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, their strategy against the president, and some biased editing ahead of the November election.
John's quote of the week:
“You get to a positive destination through life and to be with the Lord with an infinite series of negative feedback corrections. But bad feedback is going to get you to a bad destination. … I have one bottom line on the program: getting to the truth in any kind of a situation is the most critical thing out there.”
On this week's extra segment, we play a round table discussion from 2015 on globalism. The participants are Dr. Dennis Cuddy, Pat Wood, and Brannon Howse. The topic is covered from spiritual, technocratic, and historical standpoints. Fantastic exchange between John and these guests.
